Draymond Green delivers cheap shot to James Harden’s injured wrist

Draymond Green cheap shot to James Harden

It’s well known that Draymond Green is one of the dirtiest players in the league, but there’s often a spin to whatever he does.

It’s going to be hard to spin this one.

In the third quarter of Friday night’s game in Oakland, Green delivered a cheap shot blow to James Harden’s wrist in order to get a hand check free. This is not simply clearing a jersey grab… this is a closed fist punch to Harden’s forearm/wrist. Harden has been struggling lately through the pain of a left wrist injury.

Green admitted the punch after the game, claiming Harden “pinched” him.

“He pinched me so I punched his wrist,” said Green. “He does it often, actually, which is kind of adolescent but whatever.”

The video speaks for itself.
